Cary Greene  Chief Operating Officer  "Wine America" Washington DC

The Mission of  WineAmerica is to encourage the dynamic growth and development of American  wineries and winegrowing through the advancement and advocacy of sound public  policy.  WineAmerica (formerly the American Vintners Association) was  founded in 1978 as the Association of American Vintners, a trade association of  wineries with membership based in the eastern U.S. Its early mission included  fostering general communication within the developing wine industry, providing a  unified voice for government relations issues and comprehensive, affordable  insurance for its members. The association expanded in number and geographical base in the  1980s and, in 1991, merged with the much smaller National Vintners Association  to form the American Vintners Association. Another important benchmark in growth  was to structure optional joint membership between WineAmerica and Family  Winemakers of California.  With more than 800 members from 48, states WineAmerica is the  only wine trade association with national membership. This provides formidable  grass roots lobbying strength used to benefit the entire industry.  WineAmerica serves its member wineries in many areas.  WineAmerica originated important programs like the Wine Market Council, to  promote wine consumption nationally; the State Associations Council, to provide  linkage and communication for legislative/regulatory issues affecting wineries  at the state level and the American Viticulture and Enology Research Network, to  establish national research priorities. WineAmerica continues to advance the  American wine movement by responding to their needs with creative  solutions.
